94 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2004

($110) Saturated medium ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and roasted nuts; if some past vintages of this wine have been Burgundian in style, this is classic roasted Chateauneuf du Pape, but with more black than red fruits. Large-scaled, thick and explosive in the mouth, with lush flavors of black fruits, creme de framboise and minerals and firm underlying structure. Wonderfully sweet, dense and long on the aftertaste, with big but fine tannins. (Kysela Pere & Fils, Winchester, VA)

Perfection
03/22/2006
by N.Cooper
(tasted blind on 11/03/06)) Opaque colour. Pronounced and complex nose of black cherry, leather and spice. Tremendous burst of concentrated black fruit on the front palate, followed by a creamy, expansive mid-palate. The massive fruit body is balanced by crisp acidity and ripe tannins. Fantastic length with no rough edges. A little atypical of CDPs.It needs another 4-6 years to get to its peak, but it is so irresistable now! A perfect score. The winning Chateauneuf du Pape in this tasting - against Rayas '95, Pegau da Capo '98, Usseglio Cinquantenaire '99 and Domaine Caillou Reserve 2000.

About Chateauneuf du Pape

The Rhone's Chateauneuf du Pape has been one of the hottest categories of the new millennium in the American market, thanks in equal part to the nearly candied ripeness and full-bodied, chewy texture of these wines and to an unprecedented string of four consecutive very good to outstanding vintages between 1998 and 2001.
